Saturday, 8 August,New Delhi: BJP on Saturday claimed that Sonia Gandhi and Rahul were not allowing the resumption of business in Parliament even though many of their party leaders wanted the protest on the floor to be called off.
“Many Congress leaders wish that the protest should end and Parliament proceedings should be carried on smoothly, but Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi are not letting them do so,” Union Minister and BJP leader Prakash Javadekar said.
Seeking to turn the tables on Congress over the Lalit Modi issue, he said, “Congress should now tell the country how much money it received by not issuing a red-corner notice to Lalit Modi.”
“Congress should also tell how much money it received by not declaring him (Lalit Modi) an absconder and also tell the people how much money did it receive by letting Lalit Modi flee the country,” Javadekar said.
“Congress recorded its lowest ever tally in the Lok Sabha poll last year and as a result, its politics has also come down to the lowest level as it has asked some questions raising doubt over the commitment of our leader Sushma Swaraj,” Javadekar said.
Alleging that Congress had “decided beforehand” to stall Parliament proceedings, Javadekar said some of its senior leaders want the logjam to end.
